I expected more from this hotel than what we got. There were people using the pool that were not guests. When we were there at least 3 carloads of people left from using the pool that were not guests. When we told the front desk that next morning the showed no concern and said it was problem that all the... More

From check-in to check-out, every person I encountered during my stay at this hotel provided most excellent service. I am very grateful for their assistance during an emergency that interrupted my stay. I was able to quickly expedite check-out and even left with a breakfast plate that staff wrapped up for me. Hats off for a job well done!

Good hotel for the price. Nice breakfast, and very kind people. Rooms are quiet but need to be a bit refreshed. Close to historic distirct. Big swiming pool to be enjoyed after a long hot trip on Creole trail road. Easy to park with fast internet connection.

Best Western Bayou Inn & Suites in Lake Charles was a pleasant stay. The room was nicer than I expected. The arrangement was strange as the vanity area was not in the bathroom. I didn't expect to have a sitting area with a 2nd TV separate from the bed area. It was a very quiet hotel. There are plenty of... More

I really enjoyed this stay. The staff was great. The bed was very soft. I slept great. I will be back. The staff was really friends. I really enjoyed the breakfast. It was only a short trip to the casinos where we had great fun.

We had a suite on the first floor and the room was not spacious but very adequate. Parking in the back close to our room was already crowded but there is ample parking. On this particular day several people pulling trailers and boats parked sideways and took several spaces on the side of the building. The breakfast was ok but... More

I expected more from a Best Western and was very unhappy with my experience. The room had a very musty smell that made me ill. The corridors and the lobby area had a clean and fresh smell, in lieu of the room. However, the breakfast as very good. The location was fine, but far from a good restaurant. I would... More

Very inexpensive compared to nearby casino hotels. Our room 120 was very clean. Staff friendly & accommodating. Quiet even with little baseball players. Complimentary breakfast needs improving. Overall pleasant stay.

This hotel was guite a surprise as most of the hotels in the Lake Charles area cater to the casinos so are very overpriced. Don't waste your time staying in Lake Charles - stay in the areas surrounding it and you won't be disappointed.
